Wildflower Amber Blend Wild Ale #22

Marrickville, New South Wales

A richer blend, initial aromas of dark chocolate and cocoa moves to overripe cherries and dark fruits. The palate mirrors with robust early flavours that give way to plum and currant fruit notes. The finish is roasted and clean with a hint more acidity than the previous two blends. Wildflower produce delicious wild-fermented beers made to enjoy like a wine.

The base beer is brewed entirely with New South Wales cereals and malt. It is made with filtered Sydney water and Saaz (CZ) hops. It's fermented with house culture: brewers yeast, foraged wild yeast and naturally occurring souring bacteria native to New South Wales. It was bottled on 4 April 2019 and naturally conditioned through refermentation for 26 weeks. At bottling it was 6.0% ABV. Best served decantered (to rid the natural yeasts) and at cellar temperatures (10-12 degrees).

Wildflower Beer Organic Australian Wild Ale Native Craft
About the maker

Using wild yeasts, found on foraged native Australian plants including wattle blossoms and banksia, Wildflower are making exceptionally thoughtful and experimental wild-fermented beers to be enjoyed in a similar manner to wine - with good friends and food.

Founded by Texan Topher Boehm, who was both drawn in by the science and wizardry of wild-fermented beer making, whilst also trying to make a beer that his wife would not find too bitter. Focused on fermenting their beers with a diverse culture of brewers yeast, wild yeasts and bacteria whilst developing their own house culture with yeasts foraged from New South Wales. Among these practices is the blending of new and old barrel aged beer in order to highlight the complexity in flavour these wild yeasts naturally create. But Boehm would rather people focus less on the process and more on taste.
